Ran across this article about hunting deer with dogs in GA. This is a new thing to me, I've heard of hunting predators with dogs (cats and bears), but not deer.
What is the objective of using dogs with deer? Deer won't tree (at least none that I've seen), so I'm somewhat suprised to hear folks pursue deer with dogs. Not that I've got a "high minded" attitude about it (since I don't know anything about it), but I'm just curious as to what purpose dogs serve.
Seems that if folks want to hunt with dogs, they should be kept to their own season though (just like archers want to be seperate from firearms hunters). I can imagine it would be bothersome to those who don't use dogs. Any thoughts?
